Chunky Throw Blanket Knitting Pattern : Snuggled Up

Free chunky knit blanket knitting pattern made with affordable jumbo yarn!
I adore the chunky throws made with roving yarn in fancy magazines and in pretty Instagram photos. They’re so beautiful… and expensive. I’ve been looking for a more affordable alternative. I finally found it!

 

I like to use this throw blanket as a meditation cushion too. I have hardwood floors, which are not known for their warmth or coziness. The first time I sat on this throw to meditate my body sighed with relief. It kept me warm, even though the floor was cold, and it was so comfy, my ankles thanked me.

 

This was a great project to give my hands a break from thinner yarn, but keep them busy while knitflixing. I paced myself and knit 1 skein a day, so it took me 5 days to complete.
